Science Olympiad – it’s time for the nerds to shine :) #science #education #nerdgirl #nerdboy #nerd

So many distractions as I try to finish the final edit of my new book, but here’s a worthwhile distraction. Western New Mexico University hosts our regional Science Olympiad every year and I’m one of the many volunteers.

Black Widow Spider

Part of my event requires kids to identify poisonous critters – from pictures only! The Black Widow is easy.

This is a science competition for middle school and highschool kids. They get an inside look at a real university and a chance to prove themselves in both written and hands-on challenges.

The competition comes up at the end of the month and I’m diverted to getting ready. This year I’m working on the Potions and Poisons event! Slows my editing and delays research for my blog posts, but well worth it! Good luck Olympians!
